Weekly Inspiration and Happy Birthday USA!

July 4th Card by Becca Feeken using Spellbinders Hemstitch Rectangles and Spellbinders Marcheline Plume - see fully supply list at www.amazingpapergrace.com/blog/?p=32212
Happy Birthday USA!  Hi friends, I thought I’d start out our weekly inspiration post with a clean and simple patriotic card – a rarity for me.  Yes, I did a little glam but the stamp was just so beautiful I did my best not to obstruct.  I used Hemstitch Rectangles to border the stamp.  My top panel is A2 sized at 4.25 x 5.5 inches so the Hemstitch die is just the right size to border a full sized stamp.  I used  Marcheline Plume to add the decorative piece on top.  The stamp I used is a wonderful stamp by Hobby Lobby, Oh Say Can You See.

Today, as we’ve been doing every Tuesday, we’re recapping projects made this week by the Creative Team.  This week you’ll see creations made with several collections: Venise Lace,  Vintage Elegance and Graceful Borders!

Joanna Wisneiwska created an anniversary card with the Filigree Booklet.  I was blow away by this sweet creation!  It was so very clever that she used one of the corner pieces from Graceful Frame Maker as a side pocket :-)
Teresa Horner used Francesca Label and Emmeline Treillage to combine a smashing color combination of teal and kraft.  The kraft simply makes the two teal tones pop!  She overlayed the flower background with the shadow die to create contrast against the dark teal background and polished things off with a sweet bud made using Cinch and Go Flowers II.  Teresa also created two decorative boxes that are gorgeous – she added accents with Adorning Accents.

Melissa Bove  created a sweet ensemble using Graceful Floral Lace in a card and a matching box where she echoed the Floral Lace and added a decorative top with the die and stamp from Giving Occasions.  Sweet!

Anita Kejriwal had a border filled week.  She combined the Graceful Bracket Border and Graceful Sweet Words Border for a sweet layered look.  She used Graceful Floral Lace and Graceful Sweet Words Border for a lovely mitered look.

    Happy 4th to y’all’s! {{{hugz}}} <3

    I love your 4th card, Becca. Wish I lived near a Hobby Lobby as they are my favorite store but I live in the rural boonies :) I worked for them years ago. I love the fact they are always closed on Sunday so their employees can make it to church. I really love the stamp :)

    Teresa, Nice to meet ya. I love your Teal card and the cute little boxes. They all look so elegant <3

    Melissa, Nice to meet ya. I love the lacy die that you used on your cute card and box. <3 :)

    Anita, Nice to meet ya. I just love your card projects :). I can also see these as a Mixed Media Canvas projects :) <3 Especially, the blue one, it's my favorite color :) <3

    Kristi, Nice to meet ya. Tres Bien!!! Je vous remercie :). I love your little flowers, too :) <3.

    Joanna, Nice to meet ya. I absolutely love the little journal to go with the anniversary card!!! Perfect for both of our Nieces and their husbands. :) <3 <3 Do you have a tutorial on how to make it?

    The one Freedom I am most grateful for is the freedom to read my Bible anytime anywhere. While you enjoy the 4th remember the people before us that gave us this Freedom and what it cost them.ReplyCancel
